After spending over two decades at the forefront of British electronic music we’re constantly kept wondering as to what iconic Glaswegian imprint SOMA are going to do to add to their already cemented legacy.
2012 was a particularly vintage year for the Scots as it gave an acclaimed debut to Mark Reeve, released Pig & Dan’s well received album Decade and put out Gary Beck’s equally successful debut LP Being a Friend. It is the latter who has been entrusted with mixing SOMA’s 21st mix compilation as talented Scot, Beck will be helm this years retrospective mix for last year.
Featuring an exclusive new cut in the shape of a Christian Smith and Wehbba’s remix of Funk D’Void’s Diabla, the mix hightlights some of the biggest releases of last year including efforts by Ricardo Villalobos, Pig & Dan, Beck and Mark Henning amongst others as the first commercially released mix undertaken by Gary.
After 22 years SOMA have still got it and with artists like Beck in the stable you wouldn’t bet against another 22 being equally successful.
